See more details on Delhi-Bangalore:

If Delhi-Jaipur is bad you can try Delhi-Mathura by expressway and the Mathura-Bharatpur-Jaipur by pass - AMD.

I can partially answer your query. Have driven on the kishangarh to Bangalore section of your route. Kishangarh - udaipur - Ahmedabad - baroda - Surat - Mumbai - kolhapur - belgaum - Bangalore is great. Delhi to kishangarh and Bangalore to kanyakumari I haven't driven till now. Watch out for monsoon updates. The roads are good throughout from kishangarh till Bangalore. Drive safe

Dear Pottermore,

The The NH-8 & NH-4 routes are the best. I have done Mum-Amd & Udaipur-Mumbai in Dec 2013 and Mumbai - Mysore & Bangalore-Mumbai in May/June this year.

The roads are in great shape, except for the monsoon damage. Some threads say that Pune - Satara stretch is bad.

Watch out for snarls at Bharuch (between Vadodara & Surat). Not sure if the 2 bridges across the river are operational. We got stuck for 1.5 hours last Dec while going from Mumbai to Ahmedabad. Driving at a sedate speed of 100 km/h, we covered the strech in 9 hrs, including stops and the 1.5 hr delay.

Also managed Bangalore - Pune (840 kms) in 14 hrs, and Pune - Mysore (877 kms) in 15 hrs. Not exceeding 110 km/h.

Have not been on the remaining part of your intended route.

Hope this helps
